The updates are a little light today but we've still gathered everything from the usual suspects.  Mr. Looney at the Mothership is still killin' it over there so we thank him for that.

UW-RF updates will be coming out shortly and I will update this post as soon as they do.

(Edit: BobGretz.com and UWRF updates added.)

Updates after the jump.

  • Weather: 72 degress, 75% humidity (UWRF)

  • Today was Kids' Day (UWRF)
  • LB Zach Thomas returned to workouts after a day off yesterday (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • Coach Todd Haley is riding the receivers hard today.  He appears to be unhappy with them (Gretz at CBS)
  • "Coach Haley is now in the confessional with @SI_PeterKing. Coach is having flashbacks to the Penguins winning the Cup I think" (ChiefsPR Twitter)
  • Again, if you jumped off sides or turned the ball over, you're running (Mitch Holthus Twitter)

Offense

Defense

  • DB Londen Fryar made two nice plays on WR Bobby Engram.  First was an interception on an out route then other was breaking up a pass on a fly route (Josh Looney at the Mothership)

  • The starting defensive line at times was Magee, Edwards, Boone with Dorsey taking Magee's spot from time to time (UWRF)
  • NT pressured Croyle but later fell down twice to the ire of Pendergast and Haley (UWRF)
